Report on BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium 2018
“2018 was our 11th anniversary, and we were hosted at The University of Sheffield, with support from Sheffield Hallam University. Our headline sponsor was Google, who were back for the 11th year running. This was our first colloquium with Helen Miles in the chair (with Hannah Dee as deputy, and support from Amanda Clare) and she did a great job.
The main day was hosted by The University of Sheffield, and the socials (including an extra social event the evening before) were hosted by Sheffield Hallam University. The pre-event social included a QR-code-based treasure hunt around Sheffield set up by some Hallam students which really seved to break the ice.
We had 203 people registered, and as usual we all had a superb day of talks, posters, discussion, networking, and slightly too much cake. You can see a full set of photos from the event on flickr here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/handee/sets/72157695301730515.”
